Howard Stern slammed his rival Wendy Williams during his SiriusXM radio show on Wednesday after she criticized him for going Hollywood in his new book, Howard Stern Comes Again.
Wendy, who has long been compared to the shock jock, discussed his book during her Wendy Show on Wednesday.
“Howard is so Hollywood right now. And Howard, I love you, but since you’ve gone Hollywood, everything you say is so predictable,” said Williams, 54. “Every story is going to be about, ‘Oh, I love this one, and then we went on their yacht.’ He’s a Hollywood insider, which sucks.”
She continued: “You started like me, being of the people, but at some point, you sat behind the microphone for too long and now you are the people.”
Stern was livid and couldn’t contain his anger in his response.
“Jealous bitch. You are nobody to me,” the 65-year-old ranted after Wendy’s show aired on Wednesday.
“You’ll never be me, Wendy. You’ll never be me. You can pretend to be me, you can pretend to be like me, but you’re not. You don’t have my wit and you don’t have my talent. You couldn’t have that career. You’re a fly.”
“What evidence do you have that I’m Hollywood, honey?” he said. “I grew up a scumbag and I’m still treated like a scumbag. What, because I found success, now I’m ‘Hollywood’? What, ’cause I know Jimmy Kimmel? Who am I hanging out with? She doesn’t know who I’m hanging out with. She doesn’t know what I do in this world. She doesn’t know who I’m f–king with.”
“All she talks on that show is about Hollywood,” Stern said. “That’s as Hollywood as you get. If anyone in Hollywood called her to hang out, she’d [be there] in two seconds. All of that is a projection!”
Stern then directed his attention to Wendy’s personal life. The talk Diva returned to helm her talk show on March 4 after taking an extended leave to deal with health issues related to her thyroid disease.
“What have I done to this woman? Nothing,” said Stern. “I’ve been gracious to her. Worry about your husband, not me. F–k you and your dumb show and your mystery illness. She disappears for two months, nobody knows why, and now she’s questioning me? Thanks, honey. I never fainted on my show either.”
He continued: “I’m not somebody you want to f–k with, honey. I don’t want to hear your bulls–t. And you’re not a nice person. Nobody likes you, that’s why you can’t go Hollywood. People do not like her. [The staff] was doing a dance over at ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ when she was out. She’s a big pain in the ass. I hate to break the news to you, honey. Good thing you hurried back.”
